Resilience building in Tanzania: learning from experiences of institutional strengthening

Sam Greene

Working paper

Tanzania's northern districts are extremely vulnerable to climate change. In the past, community livelihood strategies have allowed people to remain productive in the context of climatic variability. But adaptive capacity is being undermined by the changing climate and the government's inability to support people's needs.
This working paper reviews the enabling environment for climate resilient development in Tanzania, and learning from local government efforts to strengthen institutional capacity adaptation and development planning.

Project information

District governments in Tanzania are improving their capacity for effective adaptive planning by strengthening planning processes and establishing local adaptation funds. With support from a consortium of government and non-government stakeholders, they are testing a devolved climate finance mechanism for building resilience, which could inform policy and action in other drylands.
